the low 80s. that is what i'm forecasting for today. the only difference with today is that year going to have the clouds begin to move into the area so instead of seeing all of that glorious sunshine, we'll see mostly cloudy skies at some point today. the temperatures coming in at 61 and edgemere and 64 in and we see the 50s in bel air. this is what we'll be dealing with as we go through the rest of today. the next storm system is on the move. you can see it back towards the midwest. and it will slide off towards the east. and we have the chance for showers to work they're way in here. all of this is courtesy of a cold front that will slide in here as we go through this evening and also by tomorrow. it will be out of here. and the backside of that front will be breezy and it will not be that cold behind the front. but we'll deal with temperatures that are dropping off into the mid-70s.
tropical storm nadine, winds sustained at 70 miles an hour and moving to the northwest at 13 miles an hour. it's staying away from the u.s. this is what we're looking like on future trend. there's the front. looks how it breaks up as it goes through the mountain and up and over the mountains. drier times ahead and much cooler. i'm going with 84 degrees. and saturday and sunday it will be nice out. with plenty of sunshine in the forecast. but next week, the rain comes back into the pick. and now a check with the abc2 news timesaver traffic. if you're traveling around the region, it will be foggy out there. so reduce your speeds and be careful. traffic is just starting to pick up in baltimore county on the harrisburg expressway. no significant delays traveling from the maryland/pennsylvania state line down to 695. here's what 95 likes like in downtown baltimore. everything is moving along.

will be more at ease. so you don't want to banish the dog when the baby is in the room. but if you can have him sit with you and give him treats when the baby is around and babies drop things from the highchair that makes them popular. >> so good things happening when the baby is around and that will make life a little easier for the dog. he'll be confused and will not know what is going on. >> and one other thing that you suggested is taking something from the hospital and introducing to the dog so it's a familiar smell. >> yes. extent is very powerful for -- scent is very powerful for them. let the dog do some sniffing to understand what is going on. that will help a lot. >> don't forget about zuda. he came in as a lot of dog. he's at the maryland spca. they have a lot of dogs and
